    Ren,

    A shocking and poignant piece of poetry, drenched in a dreadful truth. Sometimes, it is the people that are left behind who need to take a long hard look at themselves and ask honestly: did we do enough?

    Well written and all the best,

    Ben

    In poetry most important thing is the angle of the poet, the way s/he appliers her/his eyes.

    perfect vision my friend.

    Even though this is short, in my mind it could hold many different meanings, because when i hear the fall, i think of suicide, depression, rock bottom. Which in turn could all lead to the same thing. But this is an extremely powerful write because it is well written to me. You make an impact with such simple wording. And it could be about oneself, or a close person in someones life. Either way. Great!

    Ren,

    Very hard hitting piece when read aloud, I like how this brings more questions than answers and I have to agree with the other comments the this is definitely a multi-angled write.

    Very thought provoking and well marshaled.

    Awesome.

    Ren. So sad. So true. So wonderfully written. I love this piece, even though it makes me so sad. Worked in mental health for 8 years, so really do know what the meaning behind this piece is.

    Agreed.
    When one is at their lowest all they require is just one person by their side telling them that there is hope and light ahead.

    Ren, the thought you put into this is really good and the structure again emphasized your point.

    I like how open the title was to interpretation. I clicked expecting to read a poem about the Fall/Autumn. This was very effective in stirring some heavy feelings in me, as the theme is quite close to my heart. It's heartbreaking to think that for some people, this is the reality they are facing. Like at this very moment.
